Over 11,000 items were supplied by UNHCR to its civil society partners
In September, UNHCR delivered over 11,000 pieces of core relief items (CRIs) to people in need all over Trinidad and Tobago. To undertake this massive effort, UNHCR relied on our partners and friends from NGOs, civil society organisations and State agencies to identify those most in need. UNHCR delivered the items to our partners, who in turn distributed the items to refugees, migrants, and other people in need in every corner of Trinidad and Tobago. Among the items distributed were blankets, solar lanterns and mosquito nets.
Some of the agencies that UNHCR supported were:
The TT Red Cross Society
The Moruga Poverty Reduction Centre
The Food and Agriculture Organisation in TT
Helping Hearts Siparia
The Sure Foundation
The Freely Give Foundation
The TT Defence Force
La Casita Hispanic Cultural Centre
Living Water Community
UNHCR thanks our partners for their willingness to help distribute these items and we look forward to making more distributions like this to benefit vulnerable communities across the country.
